With the official start of summer in just a few days, we are in the middle of a long stretch of scorching hot days here in North Carolina. However, even though the temperatures are high, the summer is the most popular time to move. If you find yourself moving and/or storing items in this summer heat, be sure to take precautions to avoid overheating.
Heat exhaustion and heat strokes are most common in the summer months when your body is more likely to reach high temperatures. Participating in physical activity, especially activities outdoors (such as moving), can put you at higher risk for heat stroke.
The most important step to avoid heat exhaustion is to stay hydrated. That means that you should be drinking even more water than usual in order to replace the fluids you lose through sweat. Avoid sugary drinks such as soda, which can just lead to making you even more dehydrated.
According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the common symptoms of heat exhaustion include dizziness, nausea, headache, high body temperature (of 104 or higher), confusion, high heart rate, and rapid breathing. If you feel these symptoms or notice them in someone else, take action immediately. Have them sit down in a cooler area and drink water while someone contacts a medical professional.
Whether you’re moving into a new home, or putting some of your items in storage, be sure to stay cool out there.
